Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Tulsa Boiler Room based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

Boiler Room Statement of Faith

There is only one God who exists in the three persons of the Trinity:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is the Creator of everything, and reigns over the entire cosmos. He is perfectly holy, just, loving and good. He has revealed Himself through the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, is perfectly revealed through Jesus Christ, and continues to reveal Himself today through the Holy Spirit.
He is unchanging.

Jesus Christ is the Son of God the Father. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born a descendent of David -- fully God and fully man. He lived a perfect, sinless life, fulfilling the promises of God spoken by the Law and the Prophets.
He died on the cross, giving Himself as a sacrifice to offer forgiveness and rescue us from our sins, redeeming us, and restoring relationship with God. In so doing, He took the punishment that was due us. He rose again bodily by the power of the Holy Spirit, as the dawning of a new creation in Him. He ascended to Heaven and is exalted at the right hand of the Father, ruling over all, and is the Head of the
Church. He has continued interaction and relation to humans through the Spirit, through whom He can be known. He is going to come again to judge the world, and to gather all who are His to be with Him forever.

The Holy Spirit has been sent to indwell each follower of Christ. He continues to reveal the Father and glorify Jesus, and to draw people to God. All who repent, believe, and confess these things, submitting to Christ, receive the glorious gift of salvation and the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit. This is available through Christ alone, and must be received through faith.

God created mankind in His own image, without sin, to know Him and enjoy fellowship with Him. Through man’s choice to willfully disobey the commands of God and reject His Lordship, death and judgment became our inheritance. All people have continued to sin. Because of this we are by nature children of wrath, born with a propensity to sin, justly condemned in the sight of God and utterly incapable of saving ourselves or earning acceptance from God by any merit or works of our own.

The Church is the people of Christ on earth, indwelled by the Spirit, and congregated by the smaller, tangible households of Christians. It is the family of God on earth, and carries out His purposes as the body of Christ.

The 66 books of the Holy Bible are the divinely inspired Word of God. As such they are authoritative in all matters concerning what we are to believe and how we are to live. They were penned by human authors at different times, in different places and cultures, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. No other book or writing in his-
tory can make this claim or carry the authority that comes with it.

Conformed to christ

We are called to reject the pattern of the world and put off the old self, conforming instead to the pattern of Christ, putting on the new self and walking by the Spirit.

The church

Believers are expected to live out this new life-pattern as individuals and families that come together as the church, expressed by local congregations. The church is to be a family on mission, with each member diligently fulfilling his role and purpose in the body according to the grace given him. This mission is to proclaim the gospel and make disciples, reaching out to the lost and broken of the world with an invitation to receive the gospel and be united to Christ and His Church. The Church is a family of families, and its strength is dependent upon the strength of the individuals and families that make up its membership.

individual believers

As individual members of the body of Christ, we are to love and respect one another, and to serve and prefer one another. United in this body, we are led and instructed by the Holy Spirit and each other as we follow the example and teaching of Christ. Everyone has a responsibility to live in and by the fruit of the Spirit, building the church up with godly love and selfless service toward one another.

family life

As believers living self-sacrificing, submissive, and respectful lives within the church, we are to live these out diligently within our own households. We build up our families in godliness in order to build up the church with godly families. The Church also honors the single life, whether for a season or a lifetime, and recognizes in it a special opportunity to serve Christ and His Church.

relationship with the worLd

The way each member, and family of members, relate to the outside world shall be transformed as well. We must live in peace, as much as we can, with every person and institution within society. We must submit to the authority of the government as a sign of our true submission to God. As we follow Jesus, we shall seek to serve those who are outside of the Church with the example of Jesus’ selfless and unconditional love and sacrifice.


We are called to hold fast to the faith, standing firm with watchfulness and prayer, & persevering in trial.
